Let’s Play Barbie doll.  The latest doll to join my personal collection is this redhead vintage reproduction swirl ponytail Barbie doll wearing a red helenca swimsuit and matching heels, recreated by designer Bill Greening.  She came in a box that was made to look just like the vintage packaging—a small soap box with printed graphics depicting various early Barbie fashions.  The doll also came with four fashion packs—one for each season.  I can just imagine the little girls (and perhaps a few boys) getting these precious toys circa 1962-66.  I was so thrilled to de-box mine.
